The top ten winners were presented at the Curious2022 - Future Insight™ conference, from which the "Curious2022 Favourite" was selected by public vote.
Each candidate produced a 60-second video that was presented to a panel of judges comprised of editors, reporters, filmmakers, researchers and communications specialists from across Nature's portfolio. Ten finalists were selected from more than 100 entries, each of whom received a €5,000 prize, and their videos premiered at the Curious2022 - Future Insight™ conference.
